Animatus by Hyungkoo Lee






In 2006, South Korean artist, Hyungkoo Lee, held an exhibition at the natural history museum in Basel, Switzerland. Titled, "Animatus," Lee used iconic Looney Tunes characters, such as Donald Duck, and Bugs Bunny, to produce animal skeletons similarly to those made by paleontologists. via Source.
